Cecie Starr,

For two decades, Cecie Starr secured her place as one of the bestselling biology textbook authors. Her texts, appreciated for their clarity in both the written word and the visual representation of biological concepts, include multiple editions of BIOLOGY: THE UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE, BIOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS, and BIOLOGY TODAY AND TOMORROW. Her original dream was to become an architect, but now, instead of building houses, she builds -- with care and attention to detail -- incredible texts based on this philosophy: "I invite students into a chapter through an intriguing story. Once inside, they get the great windows that biologists construct on the world of life. Biology is not just another house. It is a conceptual mansion. I hope to do it justice."

Christine Evers,

Christine Evers (B.S. in Biology, State University of New York at Stony Brook) has been creating multimedia and web-based materials to supplement Starr and other science texts for ten years. After working as a research assistant studying developmental biology of slime mold, she was awarded an N.S.F. fellowship to attend Yale, where she studied Evolutionary Biology and honeybee behavior. She has a strong interest in science education and serves as a member of her local school board.

Lisa Starr,

Lisa Starr (B.A. in Chemistry/Biochemistry, University of California at San Diego, Revelle College) became an expert in molecular and cellular biology as she helped to build a veterinary virology research program at the biotech firm Syntro. She also spent seven years at The Scripps Research Institute and founded two other biotech firms. Since 1997, Lisa has been responsible for much of the art in the Starr BIOLOGY textbooks and has been a coauthor of the series since 2004.

MindTap Instructors Speak on Personalization - Anne

Instructor Anne Strauch from Rochester Institute of Technology talks about how MindTap helps her personalize her course.

"MindTap's greatest strengths are the progress tracking and the ability to add [your own] materials that are gradable."

"I'm convinced that the higher course ratings and grades were, in large part, a result of students’ engagement. It was an unmitigated success."

"Almost across the board, students using MindTap improved on the main learning objectives of the class ...I've never seen any results like this."

"MindTap was very useful – it was easy to follow and everything was right there."

FOR STUDENTS

Biology: Concepts and Applications

ISBN: 9781305967335
Should there be warning labels on fast foods? Should employers be allowed to require drug testing? This introductory text teaches you basic concepts of biology in context of critical issues. The Tenth Edition of BIOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS was developed in partnership with the National Geographic Society, known for its eye-opening photography and legacy of inspiring people. The result is a text that combines clear explanations with unparalleled visuals to introduce the process of science and core concepts of biology. "Engage" boxes help you see chapter concepts being put to work in the real world; "Learning Objectives" help focus your studying; "Applications" bring chapter content to real life; "Figure It Out" questions help you check understanding; and "Data Analysis" activities strengthen your analytical skills. This book is widely praised for clear and engaging writing, exceptional art, and terrific support from media that all work together to help you "get" biology.
